The secure management of corporate passwords is a constant struggle for businesses of all sizes. Password management without a strategy exposes your business data to unnecessary risk.
Introducing Passwords Management in Assertiv and how to reduce your security risk.
In the Password Management module, a ‘Password’ is a password, passphrase or any other private credential you use to sign onto a website or system. Assertiv provides a user friendly interface to store passwords safely within your Assertiv account.
In a business with a range of different types of employees, people will keep track of their different passwords in vastly different ways. Here are some examples:
None of these methods are secure. Here’s why:
Assertiv allows users to store passwords on their personal Assertiv account which only they can see. What’s more, Assertiv encrypts all passwords before saving them. This increases the security of the system.
Personal passwords allows optional attachment to Bookmarks displayed on your app dashboard. Your login details stay conveniently close to websites when you want to log in.
You can view, update or copy passwords to easily sign into web applications.
An exciting new feature in Assertiv is the ability to share passwords with others. This is particularly useful when multiple people share an account in an application and need a more secure method to store the username and password.
If you share a password, you have the option to share it in a ‘read only’ mode, or you can allow people to modify the password if you wish.
Shared passwords can be attached to applications in the Application Launch Dashboard and will display with a different icon ().
Assertiv encrypts Shared Passwords, similarly to Personal Passwords. This provides the following benefits:
“My Passwords” in Assertiv lists all the Passwords that you have permission to see. Both Personal and Shared Passwords are shown, with Shared Passwords identified with the icon next to the name.
Clicking on a Password in the list allows you to view the Password, or modify it (if you have permission to do so).
It’s important to keep your Assertiv account safe. We highly recommend enabling Multi Factor Authentication since this significantly reduces the chance of your account being broken into.
We recommend setting a strong, unique password on your Assertiv account. For easy and secure login, use Passwordless login. Passwordless allows you to log into Assertiv with a trusted device, like your mobile phone.
